In the last few months I've had some time to experiment with different methods of making stylized hair in blender, and one of the easiest and effective ways that I keep coming back to is using nurbs curves. A deceptively simple method, curves in blender has a ton of hidden flexibility, some of which I want to share in this tutorial.
In the video, I show you how to model stylized hair using nurbs curves, as well as how to change the bevel curve. I also go into detail on how I made a procedural material for the hair, using the automatic UV generation blender disables by default.
